Note on the attached photos (white '86 930SE) that the car has polished tips exiting both sides of the car, engine exhaust on right, wastegate on left side.............................................. ............

Thanks for posting those excellent photos of your '86 Slant. I don't know if we can use the IC as a reference to determine the type of engine in the Special Wishes cars. I have an '85 Special Wishes Slant and it had the standard IC. IC development during this era was probably the reason why. With the earlier Special Wishes Slants, the enhanced engine option requires more research. The turbocharger is a K-27 7006 (Porsche Part # on data plate) with a modified compressor outlet lip to support the unique downpipe feeding the IC. All enhanced engines also were provided with a front mounted oil cooler (RSR type) with special oil lines feeding it through the front bonnet. 935Turbo's car is an '89 506 Slant with the Special Wishes enhanced engine option.
Mine also had the dual tipped exhaust pipes, but I removed them for aesthetic purposes.......the right side tip was gouged.
